META: HM3 ads

I just updated the HeroMachine 3 app page to support Google Ads. It seems to work but the code is weirding me out, so if you see anything not behaving correctly, please let me know.

I believe I have it set up where if you go to the widescreen view, the ad disappears so you can see the entire canvas, and then it comes back when you return to the default. Again, if not, holler.

  1. For me it’s just a yellow box, no ad.

  2. I think the way it works is that it takes a few hours at least (maybe a day?) for the ad to populate with content when you first launch it. Something to do with Google validating it or something, I’m not quite sure. Hopefully by tomorrow the box will fill with beautiful advertisements!

  3. That’s fine, as long as they’re not so beautiful they distract me from making my own (hopefully) beautiful art! :D

  4. I saw one of the ads advertising the How It Should Have Ended Superhero Cafe series. I think google knows what to put up there for ads…

  5. Heyla!

    The ads are there for me, but some come up in a different tab/window and others…go straight to the ad site. Also in the Widescreen view, if you click the area where the ad is, it doesn’t open in a new tab/window, it goes straight to the site. SO, if you haven’t saved your character you were creating, kiss it goodbye! I’ve learned this the hard way. After working on different characters…I forgot myself and pressed the wrong area. AND I forgot to save it. So, that character is gone. Don’t forget to save, after a few item adds. This happens in all three browsers for me. Chrome, Firefox and IE.

    Happened to myself also. I thought I hit the window by accident, but after going over my steps, I realized I made the same action that you described. Sometimes when working on an image, I will scatter pieces all over the screen before I choose the one I like. I was looking for head options and I shuffled one to the top right hand corner and when I went to pick it up again, I went to whatever google ad was there. BUMMER!!!!!
